I also went into the shop today to get the sub/amp looked at. He mentioned that everything was pumping hard before he gave the car back to me. After a few tests, we re-ran the RCA cables from the headunit to the amp (just out the door and along the floor) and the sub started pumping hard again. I'm going to get them to re-run the cables later next week but did notice that everything was pumping as hard as it should, but then dropped off again.
All in all, highly recommend the setup I am running (for a simple setup) and I do intend to get some front components fitted at some stage too.
The final part of my installtion (that wasnt even part of the inital plan) was to get my fronts installed. As I mentioned earlier, I had previously spoken with MyAudio in regards to having the fronts flush mounted. The reason push became shove was purely because: Yeah, it did the job running the sub/amp/factory speakers buuuuuuut, at the back of my mind. I knew it wasnt running 100%
Decided to carry on with the whole JVC theme and not only purchase the items from MyAudioNZ again, but also get them to install them too. Now, after seeing most component instal jobs, they either:
- Glue the dome tweeter to the door
- Glue the dome tweater to the pillar
- Glue the dome tweater to the dash
- Use existing tweater mounting points
All of the above, I don't have nor what. So after having another chat to MyAudioNZ. We decided to flush mount the tweeters into the door. With the mounting options now sorted, I decided to see what options I had. I decided to purchased some JVC CS-VS607 6.5" Comp 300w speakers. Dropped the car off again to get everything buttoned up and here's the end result (queue photos )
Tweeters flush mounted into my doors
I did have an idea on a way to try to tie my tweeters into my car, but I feel that the silver cone/grills match the door handles nicely
This is where the iPod/USB real cable comes out of the glovebox. I use the front USB for my bluetooth dongle
Finally, the wiring job going though the door
All in all, I am VERY happy with the end result and would highly recommend MyAudioNZ to anyone and everyone. They also offer lifetime warranty, return to base on their installs.
